One of my classmates, Angela Leal, sent an email to my PIC group about Swindells Child Disability Resource Center which offers free workshops to families, professionals, community members and students.
I attended one last Saturday called Collaborative Problem Solving: Facing challenging situations with children and youth by Nicole Russell, LMSW. The three hour workshop gave me some great ideas on how to deal with explosive kids or meltdowns – something I’ve experienced a few times when working at a summer camp for kids with special needs. I was really impressed.
Swindells is offering a couple more free workshops to the public this month, one of which is this THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14TH from 7-9pm. You can register for this event (and other great events) HERE.
There is also another free workshop on Monday, November 18th:
Interventions for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) with Tammi Bailey, M.S., CCC-SLP and Anna Dvortcsak, M.S., CCC-SLP who will review core learning challenges associated with ASD, using most current research.
